Children's Day in Orkney

On Saturday, 4th May, the Japan Foundation, London co-organised the Japanese Children’s Day family event at King Street Halls in Orkney. The event was organised by Orkney Islands Council, Orkney Japan Association, The Consulate-General of Japan in Edinburgh, The Japan Society of Scotland and blue earth work.

As part of the day, participants took part in ikebana (flower-arranging) public demonstrations and children’s ikebana workshops. The latter was to mark Children’s Day, which is a Japanese annual holiday on 5th May. Participants were able to try out Japanese flower-arranging and take their creations home.

You can also learn all about ikebana on the Minato e-learning “Kadoo” course! Please click here for more information.

Thank you to everyone whose hard work made the Children’s Day family event such a huge success and thank you to everyone who took part!
